Two captive beluga whales have successfully been released into the world's first open water sea sanctuary.

"Little Grey" and "Little White" were transported individually from an indoor facility to the Icelandic sanctuary in specially designed padded slings first on a truck and then the harbour's tug boat.

After their arrival from an aquarium in China last year, the belugas have been training in an indoor pool to adapt to their new life.

The two whales also had to acclimatise for their return to a more natural habitat. This included adding more blubber for the chilly sub-Arctic waters.
